The bin startup scripts - startup.bat and startup.sh should be able to read in environment variables and pass them in to geoserver as java system variables. This will make it much easier for users to set their data dir, just use the normal, completely natural way.

<p>Ok, fixed these up, and they should work a lot better now. Improved both to use environmental variables to data dir. And souped up the java finding and java_home usage of the .bat file. r3957 and r3944</p>
